Resolving Disputes Through Arbitration

More than ever before, companies across the financial landscape are realising the benefits of alternative dispute resolution. With this in mind, we spoke to Banu Vardar, a seasoned arbitrator for Vardar Hukuk Bürosu, and got her insight into how their firm consistently provides for their clients.

Although we provide a highly diverse range of services at Vardar Hukuk Bürosu, my expertise is utilised primarily in national and international commercial and contract law with long-term consultancy experience in Germany and Turkey for foreign clients in Turkey and Turkish clients abroad.

With regards to arbitration, I have represented several international institutions and official legal expert of Ministry of Justice in Turkey for international commercial disputes. Furthermore, I have also provided legal advice and guidance on legal matters relating to commercial issues for foreign and Turkish companies. As a result of my experience, I am also a lecturer and teacher in the fields in both national and international trade law for both graduate and post graduate level courses.

In terms of my qualifications, I have LL. B degrees from Germany and Turkey and LL.M degree in International and European Business Law from Cambridge, UK and PhD (viva) from the University of Leicester, UK. At our firm, the combined expertise of our attorneys means that we can provide a comprehensive range of services for clients, who are predominantly small and medium-sized enterprises in Turkey and abroad. This includes assisting Turkish companies in the economic areas of Europe and Middle East, and also assisting foreign companies on the Turkish market. As well as arbitration, the core competencies in fields that are particularly relevant to SMEs are corporate, M&A, commercial and foreign investment, among many others.

Alongside this expertise, our law firm assists the clients in any matters relating to the negotiation and drafting of contracts as well as the enforcement of contractual claims. In addition to the core competences in the fields of contract law, we are also adept in areas of financial law such as the establishment of new companies, M&A, business transformations and changes to the capital structure as well as due diligence investigations and involvement in negotiations with Turkish, German and foreign partners.

Looking towards the latter half of 2016 and beyond, we are optimistic that our company will continue to grow and prosper. Moreover, as the legal landscape constantly evolves and transforms, we are well equipped to cater for the evolving needs of our clients.
